BCARS: Helping people to stay in their new homes

We have two practical ways of helping turn a roof and four walls into a Home.

Home Start Packs: Thanks to a grant from the Gannett Foundation, we can work with an ex-rough sleeper to get the bathroom, kitchen and bedroom basics that every house needs (up to a value of £60).

Email David on davidc@faithworkswessex.org.uk for more information

 Acts 435:

“Acts 435 is a fantastic initiative which puts people who are in need in touch with those that can help. It is a very simple idea but a very exciting one! I am proud that the Church is taking practical steps to help those facing practical difficulties.” (Dr John Sentamu, Archbishop of York)

Faithworks Wessex is a local advocate partner with Acts 435.  It is really simple: we identify the need and cost; we tell the story on the Acts435 website, and people of goodwill from all over the country log in and donate to meet that cost.

Recent successfully met needs include

  • Payment for a train fare to enable someone to attend their father’s funeral

  • A donation for school uniform to assist a single parent

  • Provision of carpet to ensure young children didn’t hurt themselves in their new home
